Composition #3

My efforts were rather ambitious today and I was pushed for time, but I wanted to get this up on the website, so here it is. It needs more work and revision before I want to make a recording, but I'm pleased with my progress all the same. I'm learning a lot about this composition business fast and becoming very aware of the gaps in my music education. Fortunately I can do something about that, and I will.

I'm finding this experiment completely compelling and consuming. I'm spending all day well and truly in my right brain thinking of what I'll try when I get the time, and consequently I'm forgetting the time and the other mundane aspects of my life. Too bad. I'll get my act together eventually.
